Second Transcontinental Trip Using The Supercharger Network

Another milestone, a team of two Model S sedans from Tesla did the trip from West to East in three days using only the supercharger network.

They also went through severe weather, snow storms, ice, wind, closed roads, and still made it.  There are now so many superchargers on the route they were able to skip some of them.  Free travel from coast to coast, in less time than most people would ever want to attempt, even in an ICE vehicle.  Still want to pretend that EV's aren't practical?

First Transcontinental Trip Using The Supercharger Network

Today the first transcontinental trip using the Tesla Supercharger network was completed.!
When they started the trip in NY two of the superchargers on the route weren't even open so they were timing it close and just about guaranteed they would be the first to complete the journey.  A good part of the trip was done in rather severe winter conditions, which makes it even more impressive.  Cross country travel on free electricity is now a reality.
